Today is E's last day at David Weekly Homes as a builder, wow. It's a bittersweet feeling for both of us (I think). E was obviously very, very good at his job because he has been told over and over the past month how much he will be missed and how awesome he was at building homes (His head might explode). E will no longer have a real paycheck, SCARY. We still have a mortgage payment anyways, SCARY. A lease was signed for Rita's, SCARY. Keys are in the mail to he and his brother, SCARY. The buildout is starting after Christmas, SCARY. E is starting a life long dream-A Business, AWESOME. E is super duper stoked about the business, AWESOME. J and E will be on a new journey, AWESOME. There is one really BIG bummer...we won't be carpooling anymore. It's going to be weird waking up for work and watching E sleep while I put on my makeup. I will have to make my own cup o' joe (haven't done that in like 5 years, seriously)! I will have to get mad at the ATX traffic by myself. I will not have my partner to bitch at about all the losers I work with at my "awesome" job. It's a bittersweet situation. I know it's for the best. I know E is thrilled and only positive energy will come about from the business, but life is going to change as of tomorrow. SCARY. Yet, AWESOME.

I hope all had a grand Turkey Day! We sure did...ate too much, drank too much, talked too much and laughed too much...AND, DROVE too much. Our families spend Thanksgiving together...I know, I know you are totally jealous cuz-that-never-happens, but we do. We spent Thanksgiving day in Johnson City on my in-laws ranch. On Friday, we woke and drove to my parents' ranch in Charlotte. A lot of driving, but it was worth it for the fun (even if I did have to small talk my husband to death on Saturday, so he wouldn't fall asleep while driving.)

I love Christmas time! I am pretty sure I could write that 1 trillion times and never get tired of writing it. We typically wait to buy our tree until it's really cold outside (Odd, I know) and last night was perfect. We took our lil (or large) fannies to Home Depot and picked out the perfect tree. We had a Griswald moment...put the tree on top of my VW Passat, ha. We had another Griswald moment when E unraveled the netting...I though for sure the limbs were going to break down the walls...the damn thing is HUGE! It sure is purdy though. I don't ever decorate it the night we get it because I know the limbs need to "fall" a little bit. Since it's so cold tonight, we are going to work out, eat fish, drink egg nog and decorate the tree with carols playing and a fire burning. Doesn't that sound W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L...why of course because it's the most wonderful time of year.

Pics soon! :) Happy Holiday Decorating!
